Celebrate the Holidays at the Winter Family Festival

It is holiday time, and snow is in the air once again in Studio City, CA. The Studio City Residents Association’s Fifth Annual Winter Family Festival and Festival of Giving will be held at Studio City Recreation Center (aka “Beeman Park”) on Sunday, December 13, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Studio City Recreation Center is located at 12621 Rye Street, Studio City, CA 91604.
Last year, more than 5000 people got into the holiday spirit and gave back to the community as well at this popular free event, which is presented to the community by the Studio City Residents Association and Studio City Recreation Center. The event, the largest to-date, saw thousands playing in more than 70 tons of snow, with slides, snowball fights and snowman making.
Guests attending the event donated more than 500 pieces of clothing, more than 250 pounds of food, as well as many boxes of books, toys and pet items to the onsite Festival of Giving, which benefitted the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry, St. Charles Service Center, the LAPD North Hollywood Division Gift and Food Drive, Pet Orphans, Aviva Family & Children’s Services and Iris Blossom Charities. Guests also enjoyed samples from local restaurants, craft-making, free photos with Santa, food trucks and many other activities.
